Dear Sir/ Madam I am currently looking for an antibody (any host) suitable for staining ESAM by IHC in paraffin sections of human tissue in a pilot research project. I have previously been using the R@D systems goat polyclonal for this application but I have encountered problems with their current batch. Do you have any plans to release such an antibody in the near future? Many Thanks

Thank you for contacting us. We currently have two antibodies directed towards human EMSA, ab74777 and ab73988. Both are rabbit polyclonals. ab74777 like the antibody you have previously used is directed against the extracellular domain of ESAM while the ab73988 immunogen is taken from the C-terminal domain. Both of the antibodies have been tested by WB, and ICC and IHC frozen sections respectively, however neither of these antibodies have to date been tested for IHC with paraffin sections. If you were to purchase either of these antibodies and use them with human paraffin sections for IHC we would be able to offer you a testing discount. This would mean if you purchase the antibody, test it and share the results with us through an Abreview you would then get a free primary antibody of your choice from our catalogue. If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps: 1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab74777 or ab73988 with IHC-P. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing the antibody so please wait for my reply before ordering. 2. Purchase ab74777 or ab73988 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com). 3. Test it in IHC-P. 4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out more about our Abreview system, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews. 5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any primary antibody ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue. We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab74777 or ab73988 turns out to be unsuitable for IHC-P, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
